Guitarist for All Genres: Alyn Syms

Alyn Syms is a guitarist for all genres, a composer in all forms. His guitar collection ranges from classic acoustic to fiery red electric.  His music portfolio spans funk to rock to classically-inspired new age.  He has performed on national television as the  lead guitarist for Rick James, fronted Buffalo’s premiere all-original rock group, ASG, and regularly plays acoustic performances at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.  Yet at the base of it all, Alyn Syms is a man who literally lives music with his every breath and thought.

Syms’ discography includes a 1979 EP (ASG) and a 1981 album (The Offering) recorded with his band, the Alyn Syms Group (ASG).  The Lackawanna native then changed tracks and spent ten years writing a new style of rock music, which he recorded and released in 2004 as his first solo CD (The Lost Art).  Syms followed his critically successful solo effort with a dramatic departure from rock to a classically inspired new age style of music.  In 2013 he released, Black Forest Part One, with Part two planned for 2014.  At the same time this multi-dimensional musician is returning to his musical roots with his latest group project, Alyn Syms & the Jam Band, showcasing his original blend of funk and rock that he defines as, “Ghetto Metal”.   More information about Alyn Syms and his music can be found on his website
